Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Group / family tent
Skandika Nimbus

A flatlet out of the pocket! Spacious - quick to pitch - high quality

Weighing only 38 kg when packed - but giving a surface area of approx. 40 square metres (430 sq. ft.) and a height of more than 2 metres (approx. 6’6’’)! Enough room for 12 people! And so high only the very tall will have to worry about bending or crawling.

The tent is sturdy when pitched and remains stable even in high winds.

Some people think the Nimbus tent "heaven-sent". It stays on the ground as if nailed there whether in wind or rain, and protects against harmful UVC rays.

The entrance is your sunroof. With an awning for barbecues or just sitting down to relax. Offering enough space for luggage, a grill, food supplies, etc, etc, etc. The front side of the tent with the entrance (on the map as thin gray line) can easily be moved forward. So the terrace gives way to a larger living room.

Strong: the poles. Made from flexible, yet shatterproof fibre glass, 11 mm (0.43’’) in diameter.

Breathable inner tent material - ideal for allowing fresh air in. And this means the tent has an ideal climate in all weathers! The vents provide direct ventilation of the interior of the tent.

Extra resilient water column. The water column describes the quality and strength of the tent coating: the higher the water column, the more water resistant the coating ( ...and the higher the price). A tent is considered waterproof at 1,200 mm (47.2"), but the difference between this and higher levels becomes obvious as soon as it rains heavily.

The Nimbus model provides a 5,000 mm (196") water column thanks to innovative PU-coated polyester, which also makes the tent UV-resistant and particularly weather resistant.

And another plus point: The finish! Sealed seams with extra reinforced grommets and ties, thicker, webbed threads which make the material more robust and prevent tears from getting bigger. Cords are used to connect segments.

The tent comes in a handy pack complete with numerous accessories such as guy lines, stakes, and assembly instructions. A repair kit is also included.

The ground floor for the living room is included.

The Nimbus model - So durable, the kids of your kids will still be camping in it.

Product Description

The NIMBUS is an extremely spacious 12-berth tent for larger groups which is quick and easy to erect and at the same time offers greatest protection.

The tent has a peak height of over 200 cm, allowing best possible freedom of movement and the generous living area in the centre provides ample space for all your belongings. The porch area at the front can be used as a part of the main living area, should you need a larger tent: simply zip the front wall out and zip it in right at the front of the porch, extending the size of your indoor area. Left as an open porch, the sheltered front area offers a cosy retreat for you and your friends on cooler evenings.

The three sleeping pods are positioned one at either side of the tent and one at the back. The large pod at the back has a central divider which can be rolled down. The breathable inner tent material and vents help keep the climate inside the tent comfortable and mesh on the sleeping pods and main entrance keep out any unwelcome insects. The handy magazine holder and mesh storage pockets are useful extras in this practical tent and a groundsheet for the living area is included.

The NIMBUS offers a fantastic 5,000 mm water column, giving you and your family excellent protection from even the nastiest of British weather.

To be honest I brought mine from ebay for even less, but when I was searching for a large tent the image, and then the actual Skandika website, gave me a really good idea of what I was thinking of buying. I lost the bid initially, and then it came online again, the previous bidder and messed the vendor around. The vendor did not have the instructions so when it came to erecting the thing I was literally in the dark. My partner (not a happy camper at the best of times) and I erected this massive 8m x 7m monster in the dark, by the sea, in a slight gale and under Welsh rain. Well, believe it or not, even when the main body of the tent plummed out into a parachute and nearly sent my beloved across the field into the next one with a load of cattle, we were able to get thing up in an hour.
Spending a long weekend by the sea in it, with my partner and excitable collie dog, was an absolute pleasure. We had space to make one of the sleeping compartments into a kitchen, the other into a general purpose store. There was plenty of room in the large back of the tent sleeping compartment. The ground sheet covered the main central floor space and the extra front porch was a god send when the heavens erupted.
It is like sleeping in a marquee if you are a small family unit, but already several friends want to come along and share it, and I am not so sure I want to share the luxury afforded by this monster tent. There are some really well thought through solutions from: colour coded tent poles, the small windows near the bottom of the tent to allow light in the darker places of the tent, to the little inbuilt ceiling window flaps which aid star gazing and general light levels. The tent is sturdy - I thought it was Swedish - I now think it might be German.

We bought this tent after our 5 berth became too small.
Although it is a 12 man tent, we are only a family of 7, but the tent suited our needs perfectly.
There is enough space to stretch out, so you aren't on top of each other.
We used the large sleeping area for us, which comes with a handy divider which we used and put our wardrobes in the other half.
Three children in one pod and two in the other pod, left lots of space in the middle should the weather play up. We had enough space for a table and chairs to play games etc.
At the front we closed off halfway and had an entrance area, for shoes and swimming floats etc.
So much space, which is what you need when away camping.

Putting the tent together was extremely easy as the poles are all colour co-ordinated. Working together took us no time at all.

Overall a very happy buy and would highly recommend.

It does what it says on the tin..so to speak!! its Big, its simple to put up and quick to put down. Instructions take a little bit of reading, but once mastered it really is easy. One thing it doesn't explain is there are very important black "guide straps" which HAVE to sit underneth the whole of the fabric of the tent so once the tent is starting to take shape, these straps will sit square on the floor to the guide the ground sheets!!
But overall the tent is totally amazing, tons of rooms lots of windows and air vents and would rate this to anyone !!
Happy camping and may see you there...you wont really miss this tent :)

Verified Purchase
Have used this tent twice since purchase, its easy to put up once you have sussed out how to do it as the instructions are useless. Its a very large tent that could accommodate 8 adults max. I could park my car in this tent! Be aware this tent is 8m x 7m so some campsites will not allow this size tent in peak season, check with campsite first.

We are a family of six and decided to buy something bigger. This is an excellent tent with loads of room for all of our stuff. It doesn't take long to put up with two working together. Packs away nicely afterwards. The only downside is no built in ground sheet but hey you get what you pay for. if you want unadulterated luxury stay in a hotel. If you want to enjoy the outdoors buy a tent.
